Help name my third baby
This is my final stop on my desperate search to find a perfect name for my third child.
I have been searching for months but can't find anything I love as much as my first two.
Like with my first two, the sex is a surprise so need two names lined up!
My two children already are:
Hudson Archer Jude (just turned four)
Harlow Aspen Belle (26 months)
I absolutely love Harlow and Hudson and need to find something i love just as much! I am due in seven weeks!!!
Even though my two both start with an H, this wasn't on purpose and was just because these were my top two names.
I am not trying to carry this on. Before anyone says this one will be left out, i am planning on having one more so don't worry about that! Plus I come from an EEA sibset
My wonderful husband of five years let's me get on with the baby naming as he knows how much i love it and we have similar naming styles. Here are some names i like so you can get an idea of naming styles!
Noah (LOVE LOVE but way too popular )
Luca (Not adventurous enough but LOVE)
Marlowe (obviously wouldn't use because of Harlow but was my second choice)
As you can see struggling on girls names..

I know you've said you aren't necessarily continuing on the H first names, but what about the A first middle names, and the one syllable second middle names? I've also noticed that all the first names and the first middle names are two syllables. So do you plan with continuing any of these?
Personally, I think the two 'trends' that would be great to continue are the A middle names and the one syllable second middle name.
Flynn | Super quirky and if not a first, consider as a second mn. What about Floyd or Finn (and any longer versions of Finn)?
Parker | Great name and I think it fits with your other children's names.
Noah | I love this and I do agree it's popular. Maybe consider as a mn if you aren't continuing with the trends outlines above.
Sawyer | This is starting to grow on me and I think it really fits.
Lincoln | Also great choice.
Beckett | Not a fan, sorry.
Luca | I love this and it works on both genders. It's not that adventurous so I reckon you could manage it.
Marlowe | Yep, please don't use this, even though it's a nice name.
Ever | Nms and I dislike it. What about Evelyn, Eve or Everly which might be better choices?
Shiloh | Rhymes with Harlow so probably not.
Now I'll throw some names at you for the girls:

Honestly, I like all your names for a boy, though I agree that Noah is too popular and Luca does seem like an outlier with Hudson and Harlow.
Have you thought about Finn or Finnegan instead of Flynn? And if Noah and Luca won't quite work than maybe Ezra, Micah, Declan, Milo, Everett, Gray, Jude, and Weston would work.
For girls, I agree with the previous poster that I'm not a big fan of Ever on it's own. It seems to be a different style from Harlow and Hudson as well, so if you really like it, I would use it as a nickname for something like Evelyn or Evangeline. I also think that Shiloh is a little too close to Harlow. Harlow has kind of a 1930's glamour feel to me due to the actress. I LOVE Vivian/Vivienne with your sibset, but other names that have that "glamour" feel to me are Ingrid, Viola, Audrey, Genevieve, and Mae. Some other suggestions I think you may like are Sienna, Scarlett, Elodie, Rosemary, Eloise, Violet, Frances/Francesca, Elise, and Winnie/Winifred.
So far I think my favorites are Hudson, Harlow, and...
Evangeline (w/ possible nn Ever)
Congrats on the new baby and best of luck!

Can I just throw some suggestions at you? I agree it's not important to have another H name, but as pp said, it'd be nice to continue the "rhythm" you have going on in the first two by repeating syllable count:
Hudson, Harlow, &...
Jonah- wonderful alternative to Noah; only #135 popularity-wise
Lawson- love how it combines letters and sounds from Hudson/Harlow
Holden- fits right into your sib set, while still being distinct
Barrett- cute alternative to Beckett; a little less abrupt
Forrest- so very handsome
Freya: sounds so good with Harlow
Hester: so unusual, but works well with your sib set, especially the un-expected Harlow
Clover: too far out there for you?
Flynn- since you already love it, why not use it as the one-syllable second-middle?

Thank you very much for your help!
Sorry i wasn't very clear with my girls style- hurried to finish the post and just quickly jotted down a few!
My favourite girl names at the moment are Esme and Alden.
Ever is a definite middle name for me as it has significance to me and my husband. Love love Everett and Gray. Shiloh is more of a guilty pleasure think it is too animal like for me. i have more names now in my signature to think about too.
Jude is Hudsons' middle name- love it! but short names like that and Gray i prefer for middle.
Still haven't found a girls' name i even really like
closest think is Alden, any suggestions similar ?
thank you so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!Hudson Archer Jude
Harlow Aspen Belle
Expecting: Esme Alden True or Parker Wyatt Gray
